Need to let go of barbarianism!

It is heartbreaking to read about the Christian couple that was brutally beaten to death and burnt in a brick kiln furnace. What is more morally questioning is not the act itself but the fact that common people of our country are capable of such barbarous acts even in today’s day and age. It is ironic that how a nation that was built for the very purpose of enabling minorities (at that time, the Muslims) to practice their faith freely is the same nation today that is riddled with such fierce sectarian violence. I urge for each of us to take a good look at the moral fabric that is close to deteriorated in our society and rise against such practices.
